The Rhodes Congress, sponsored by Bridge Overseas, concluded on Tuesday 13th October, and was a huge success. The participants at the sold-out event were treated to great weather, an excellent venue, and a fun week of bridge.
The main events of the congress were the Swiss Pairs and Swiss Teams, which were Green Pointed. The Swiss Pairs was won by Tom Gisborne & Sandy Davies (both Yorkshire) (pictured here) who won eight out of ten matches to finish on 146 VPs, three ahead of Emile Lawy & Richard Spencer (both Middlesex) .
The Swiss Teams was won by Bernard Themis, Angela McCready (both Surrey), David Jones & Jan Duncan (both Avon) (pictured above). They won eight of ten matches, and finished on 137 VPs, just a single point ahead of Joy Blakey, Irving Blakey, Rhona Goldenfield, Bernard Goldenfield (all Manchester).
